The sunny afternoon of Sat., March 30, certainly looked and felt like spring—and sounded like it, too. But I was on campus to immerse myself in the more unusual auditory stimuli of Soundfest, a featured event of the 2012–13 Copeland Colloquium: “Art in Place / the Place of Art.”

Tuesday March 12 — "Art in Research / the Place of Research in Art"

Please join us Tuesday afternoon, 4:30 pm, in the Reading Room of Amherst College's Frost Library, with Copeland Fellows Idan Cohen, Eric Leonardson, Matana Roberts, & Artist in Residence Rebekah Tolley.

The panelists will discuss varying modes of “research” in their multidisciplinary work, exploring how their creative process shapes the works they produce.
